The p90 was made to replace the mp5. It is a SMG not a carbine. That's why it has a shorter barrel.

I understand that it was a SMG and originally designed to have a short barrel.

But when adapted to be civilian legal here in the US it has a barrel that sticks out well past the front of the gun where the original barrel stops

My curiosity stemmed from the fact that if it was a bull pup design why would they add unnecessary barrel length onto the barrel of the civilian legal model. I imagined that it would have around 16" of barrel sunk into that little gun already as it was originally designed since it was a bullpup.

But that's where I messed up as its only a 10" barrel to begin with. And that extra barrel length is actually to make it 16". I'm not completely familiar with the gun besides fondling one long ago so I was not sure how far the action and breach was set back into the gun,apparently not as much as a thought.

I've never fired a BP, so educate me here. It seems the way it's configured with the action next to your ear, a bullpup would have a built in flinch factor. Is that the case or and I making something out of nothing?

Most of the report comes out of the muzzle. So it's no louder than a AR.

I own an Armpistol, clunkier perhaps than some of the newer designs, but still an interesting weapon with its own attributes.

Rare as hell if that is what I think it is. This the old Bushmaster .223 pistol with a bullpup setup?

Yeah FirearmsTalk should have a bullpup subform. I have one and love it.



It always gets a lot of questions when I take her out.
